A new poll showed that nearly half of white Southerners believe that “white people are currently under attack in this country” and a FBI report confirms that they’re not just whistling Dixie.
The FBI’s 2016 Hate Crime Statistics report indicates that racially motivated offenses committed against white people are the fastest growing hate crimes in America.
There were 876 reported anti-white hate crime offenses in 2016 — an increase of more than 19 percent over 2015, which saw 734 offenses, according to the FBI report.
The numbers are not too surprising, given the media’s blood lust for President Donald Trump. An effort that goes to great lengths to paint Trump as a racist by alleging that he embraces white nationalist groups — the end result being his supporters are often targeted for violence and intimidation.
It has also become politically acceptable to target white folks, primarily white males, for reverse discrimination, with liberals often demanding that they take a back seat to people of color in all matters due to the perceived myth of white supremacy.
And, coupled with a rise in anti-white hate crimes, Caucasians are feeling the effects, as seen in a Winthrop University poll on current attitudes toward race relations in the South.

Even more troubling, racial hate crime offenses appear to be on the rise altogether in post-Obama America.
FBI statistics show that there were 4,029 “Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry” motivated single-bias incidents in 2015, and that number grew by 200 to 4,229 in 2016.
Anti-Hispanic or Latino hate crimes also increased in 2016 by 18.4 percent.
Suggesting the U.S. is growing more intolerant as a society, there was also a recorded increase in religious hate crimes, with anti-Jewish hate crimes up by 20 percent and anti-Islamic hate crimes up by 26.5 percent.
Ironically, amid all the vocal protesting across the country against racism, as seen in the national anthem protests, the data shows a decrease in anti-black hate crimes.
